it has been almost a month since i posted anything. i do have a really good reason for this. our little bundle of boy was born march 26! he was 8 lbs. 6 oz. and 20 in. long. he is already 2.5 weeks old; i cannot believe it. we waited so long for him to get here and now time is flying by.
here are some pics from kase's big day. enjoy.

i don't remember being this big at all! especially now!

kase and gigi

kase and auntie lil

getting to see him for the first time!

finally, a boy!

i love this picture of kase and his big cousin grace.
leaving the hospital.

we had kase's newborn pictures taken when he was a week old. check out the sneak peek at this link: kase's pics it's going to be incredibly hard to pick out which ones to buy and i have only seen the preview so far!

this is no longer normal.

my school secretary tells me everyday that my "situation," is not normal. i really hadn't noticed how huge this baby was until kyle took this picture. we did find out last week at our appointment that kase has decided to flip over and be a breech baby. i am by no means upset by this. i've read story after story of all of these women who are extremely disappointed that they missed out on the birthing experience by having a c-section.

my point of view: bring. it. on.

missing out on hours of labor and pain does not make me feel like less of a woman. sounds good to me actually. so now the four of us (dogs count as people in our house) are just sitting around waiting on something to happen. if nothing happens then kase will for sure be here on march 26th!

car seat is installed.
(i keep thinking someone is going to see the car seat and
comment on why we are leaving our baby in the car....)

bags are packed and ready to grab.

in the meantime here are some of my new favorite things, check them out:

-the first three are discount websites for mom, baby and kid gear! it is always great stuff and it sells out fast. so be there at 10 a.m. or you'll miss it.)

-this is the website of the girl is going to take all of kase's newborn pics. eeek! i am so excited for these pictures i can't stand it! she was exactly what i was looking for! she happens to be the aunt of one of my super-duper kiddos! her stuff is so cute!

flying in first class.

here are the high demand nursery pics.
we went with a vintage theme. the baby motif's were not really our thing.
it was a lot of work, but we love his nursery.
it's simple; that's how we like things around here.

view from doorway.

changing table, - the changing pad at the moment.
i love his bomber jacket that his auntie lili got him.

close up of the desk/bookshelf area.

crib (thanks grams and pops). basket of books. the little rocking chair was my mom's, then mine and now it will be kase's, the little stick horse in the corner was mine when i was little too. good thing gigi held onto all of that stuff (thanks, mom).

bedding made by gigi. (b's mom). we never found anything we liked, but this is perfect.



cute play mat also made by gigi. it has all kinds of different ribbons, textures and little toys on it. perfect for baby's touch and feel discoveries.

vintage abacus.

it took forever to find art, but we finally found these at
hobby lobby and snagged them up.

watch b grow.

we are finally nearing the end of this whole pregnant thing. yay!
here is a little look back from where i started at to where i am now.
i hope i can get back to the starting point soon. i will have about 9 weeks until summer, right? plenty of time to let jillian michaels kick my butt back into shape....we'll see...
(i'm also cracking up at how much the furniture in this room has been rearranged in the last 8 months)
11 weeks
14 weeks
20 weeks
24 weeks
28 weeks
30 weeks
33 weeks

one of our concerns right now is trying to prepare our four legged babies for the new human baby. we read that you should start practicing by holding a doll, but gus ignored the doll and zoe figured out it was a toy and wanted to chew on it.

gus has been my cuddle buddy through all of this. we definitely think he knows something is up. he will either be very protective of kase or very jealous. both dogs have been around our nieces a lot and do fine, so we are feeling pretty confident...
zoe, bless her little heart, is definitely the more silly of the two. she will be completely infatuated with kase and have her little nose in his face all of the time.

happy 1st birthday today to our niece emi!

30 weeks.

here is the requested belly pic.
it is huge.
my back hurts,
i can't reach my toes,
i'm super moody,
always hungry,
but still very excited.
ten more weeks, but i'll be shocked if i make it that long.
i am secretly hoping he makes an early entrance, only if he is healthy of course!

no touchy!

my dad and stepmom gave us a 4d ultrasound package for christmas. so we and all of our parental units took the afternoon off work to enjoy sometime with our future bundle of joy. we went to miracle within in edmond. we had an hour session scheduled.

well, if an infant can throw a fit in the womb, our child did it. so, either he is just like me and can throw an awesome fit or he is like his dad and is totally chill unless someone really gets under his skin. the first 20 minutes were great, then the tech started poking him and he was not such a fan. here is the play by play of the action:

"oh, look how sweet and innocent I am everybody."

this is where the tech started ticking him off, a.k.a the fit starts.

"leave me alone, please!"
"i'm telling you you better stop it."
"now, i'm officially hating you techy!"

"i told you to stop, now watch me flip over and completely ignore you."
now he is just showing off...this is definitely like his dad.
"don't look at me anymore!"

this is what we saw for the last 40 minutes. the back of this head.
he had definitely had it with the tech. here he has his hand over his shoulder. you can see his ear and the bumpy stuff on his head is hair.
